The portico, probably the seat of the previous medieval church
The fresco in the lunette above the entrance door to the convent was also made by Polinori and depicts St. Francis receiving the Stigmata. Under the portico on the facade of the church there are modest eighteenth-century frescoes, covered with ancient graffiti and signatures of visitors or pilgrims – of which it would be very interesting and important to know more about them.
On the left wall of the portico, in a baroque frame, a fifteenth-century fresco – detached along with the entire supporting wall – is displayed depicting the client in prayer before the Virgin, brought to Her by St. Peter. Perhaps, it is the only artistic proof of the previous destroyed church.
